BELOIT - The Beloit Knitro soccer team played to a tie for the second time in as many days, as they deadlocked with Madison La Follette 2-2 Tuesday night.

Jillian Valk scored both goals for the Knitro, with the first coming off a pass from Alyssa Jimenez. La Follette tied the score seven minutes later, but Valk scored again to make it 2-1, Beloit.

La Follette scored the final goal of the game to make it 2-2 in the 65th minute.

"Playing back-to-back games with a young team for the first time was tough, but the girls battled through tired legs and worked hard throughout the game," Beloit coach Brian Denu said. "Marieli Perez didn't scratch the score line but played an excellent game up top along side of Jillian. Jillian and Alyssa continue to have a great connection linking up for goals and Meghan Drucker is playing like she has been playing goalkeeper her whole life, not just the last two years."
